    Yes, this is good news. but this is not beacuse of RTI Act or any new generation being different and willing to fight longer. this is just beacuse it is relative ranking with respective to other countries.
    But we consider India alone, we are still at the same level and nothing has really changed.

  2. Polite Indian Says:

    So you mean it is not India doing any better but the other countries have started doing worse. Interesting 🙂

    Yes, i know lot of my colleagues ( who earn more than 4 lpa) are ready to bribe a RTO officer for driving license. one of my colleagues even criticised the previous government for taking strict measures (to some extent) against the corrupt officials. He says ” Under the present government, officials act quickly when they are bribed. this is good for me.”
    I want to see how this guy reacts if he is in a situation where he has to legally win over a person who has more money and power.

    Hey, i just read my previous comment and what is that lot of colleagues. it’s time for me to go back to school and learn some english 😦

  5. Polite Indian Says:

    Yes Bribing is an issue. I was reading in Hindustan times today about the problems the drivers pose today. The drivers get the license by bribing and know nothing about the rules. Then they create havoc on the road.
    BTW as for learning english, Read this and you might feel better.

    The state of Rajasthan was the first to implement RTI (even before the center started talking about it). There has been enormous benefits in the Muster rolls, relief work and things which matter to the welfare of the public.
    Any step … no matter how small is a great welcome in the fight against corruption.

  7. Polite Indian Says:

    pegasus,

    I have been following the RTI related blogs for sometime now and I can see how this thing can make a difference.
    Only if it doesn’t get watered down by the politicians!

  8. pegasus Says:

    politicians and bureaucrats have vested interest in killing RTI. so they will cite one reason or other to not implement it.

    I know all this math but can we learn about indians now?
